The following websites provide marine WX for SE Asia. Rowdys Net relay relevant forecasts to MM Region 3 when we run the net every morning. (See News Item: South East Asian Maritime Net Up & Running )

US Navy/Military: Joint Typhoon Warning Center

World Meteorological Organization - A list of websites for National Meteorological Institutes: http://www.wmo.ch/web-en/member.html

The Singapore site (Meteorological Service Singapore ) comes up fastest, once you are in there -go to regional weather chart also shipping bulletin. Good site. Also: http://intranet.mssinet.gov.sg/marine

The Philippines site, http://www.pagasa.dost.gov.ph/ is a good site once things have hotted up - typhoon plotting and links. Also, http://www.typhoon2000.com/

The Malaysian site - http://www.kjc.gov.my/homex.htm - check the date, update etc. The Shipping bulletin ok but the wind speed is given in Kms!

The Indonesian site is tortuous - http://www.bmg.go.id/ as is Hong Kong, http://www.hko.gov.hk/ - still one of the best forecasters but fairly parochial. Another Hong Kong weather site is www.weather.org.hk
